elp Trying to land in multiple areas in western europe,ive tried norway,in each area enmey has a AA gun an inf and an ART unit.Three invasions now that i have attempted with an ART gun it it gives the enemy an OP fire,each time i have watch the entire invasion force get blown away.Hence my game has been lost then and there.How on earth can i invade with a massive force and get past that one Art unit.

Air units and bombarding fleets will focus on enemy artillery. You need to take out the artillery with air strikes and supporting fleets (if you are willing to risk the fleets getting hit by return fire from the artillery) first before landing troops. You can also drop an airborne unit into the are first in order to minimize the Op-fire from the artillery. If you can't do any of these things, you can still invade if you have enough transports and units to burn on the Op-fire, but it's better to take out the artillery even if it costs you some in doing this.

I am having a hard time understanding why I can't land my troops from Western Germany to southern England. I have plentty of supply, but the troops will only Strat move onto the transports but it shows "illegal move" when I try to land them. The game manual is not any help

Strat movement & Amphibious Invasion are completely different things, Swampy (Love the name BTW)
For Invasion you typically need 2 transports per 1 Infantry (Japan has improved transports, and needs only 1:1) although I think 5 transports gets you 3 units.
My guess is you have just 1 transport there, so you can't Amphibious Invade :(
I think it should be easier to invade where there's a Crossing Arrow. Makes sense & opens up new tactics :) Like actually invading England before Scotland falls...

Also, you can't amphibiously invade a Cold region during a Winter turn.

Thanks guys. Even though I poured over the rules I tried to invade England during winter and had only 3 transports.
